Back in The Land of The Living

Monday and Tuesday, I spent the greater part of that 48 hours either on my knees on sitting in the bathroom, no need to say more… I thought I was dying, it must have been some virus I picked up from somewhere, because I hadn\’t eaten anything out of the ordinary.

Yesterday I spent building myself up again, because I had only taken water during those two days, I managed to cut the grass, and do some cleaning.

This morning I took the Montero for it\’s revision tecnico / annual inspection, and it passed, with a couple of recommendations about leaking oil, but nothing serious, and being a car nearly 24 years old, I think a couple of leaks, can be overlooked for now.

In a couple of weeks, the Father in Law is coming back here, he has a serious eye problem, and needs to see a specialist, I find it hard to believe but the nearest one to him is in Medellin, five hours from Caucasia, something we take for granted is available back in Europe, and yet is in short supply here. It\’s at times like this that you realise Colombia is far from being up with modern countries in so many respects, unless you have money behind you.

We have been informed that we may well, be having more viewers to the finca this week-end, so we are keeping our fingers crossed, but I am not doing any re-arranging until it is confirmed, even if it means me cursing and running around at the last minute.

I think that brings me up to date, a short and sweet entry.

I moved to Colombia from Spain in 2012, and I am happily married to a Colombiana.
